 The XTLB refill handler splitter misplaces labels associated with an
instruction that gets placed in the branch delay slot of the splitting 
branch.  Here's an example:

tlb-handler.img:     file format binary

I've fixed it by separating the label mover (and the reloc mover, for 
consistency) and using it to fix up relevant labels.  I'll apply it if 
it's OK with you.
